​Representing George Brown College Support Staff

Ontario college strike begins Monday morning as employer rejects faculty offer  - Sunday, October 15, 2017 - 9:00pm

Secondly, I want to thank all of you for giving me the honour of representing you for the last 30 years.  It hasn't always been easy, but we have created some fond and wonderful memories together, made some positive changes in the workplace, and made life easier for the people who come after each of us.

Lastly, please remember to give the newly elected leadership of your Local the same support, respect and assistance.  They are a wonderful group of activists and together you will do great things.  

I hope to keep up with many of you and cross paths in my new life away from George Brown College.  All the best to each and every one of you.  

Thanks for the memories!

Dear Support Staff Members of OPSEU Local 557,

I have no more working Mondays left.  In fact, this past Monday was my first Monday of retirement.  I have to say that it felt rather odd to not get on the train, take the subway and head to Case Loma campus.  Almost 30 years of routine can be hard to change.  

Firstly, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you who were able to attend the retirement party that was thrown for me on Friday evening.  It touched me deeply to see so many of you give up your Friday evening away from your own family to send me off "in style".  What an amazing party it was!  Thank you, thank you, thank you.
